    Oh give me a break.  You think this is what I do? Im a Lebron guy because im from Cleveland,  but I don't take anything from Jordan's game.  It's also not like any of us have influence.  We're just shooting the shit on a rock band board. 
    Lol, don’t be offended, just shooting the shit on a rock band board.

    Everyone is on such pins and needles with this situation that no one wants to offend anyone and not seem like they aren't honoring Kobe.

    Yes they made it seem very somber and I like what Lebron said on making it a celebration of his life because it's been doom and gloom all week.

    I really like these 2 pieces that Bosslogic posted on Instagram:




    “Do not postpone happiness”
    (Jeff Tweedy, Sydney 2007)

    “Put yer good money on the sunrise”
    (Tim Rogers)

    Love that Ed dedicated a song to Kobe.

    Are we still grieving this guy a month later?  Holy hell.  I mean, it sucks that he died but christ, you'd think it was the fucking pope or president.

    If you enjoy rock over sports sure.  Everyone’s different.  
    Both influenced generations of people.  Both deaths left a void. 

    Obviously one was way more popular with the public.   Either way people care.

    There won't even be a TSA report for a year.  Is she going for a quick settlement?
  • WobbieWobbie Posts: 26,665
    maybe she’ll take another $7M purple diamond.

    You guys are terrible

    like a bunch of whining gossipy high schoolers

    lawsuits are filed for all different reasons... I’m sure she has enough money

    jesus I thought Fox News trolls were bad

    Dude, I think the RIP Chris Cornell thread was on page 1 of The Porch until 2020 North American tour rumors started heating up.

    Offering an opinion isn’t whining. 

    If it’s not about money, sue for a reasonable amount. 
  • CROJAM95CROJAM95 Posts: 6,784
    Reasonable amount.... how do you calculate that? Guy was 41, just won an Oscar...... would have made a few hundred million dollars more in life

    A) you don’t know what she would do with a potential payout? Give it all away, charities, other family’s who lost loved ones

    B) want to talk about opinions? Mine was on day one... this pilot royally fucked up... it was clear as day ( no pun intended) he should not have done what he did.... I didn’t say boo, but the report the other day of him doing this before, also day 1 said he could only fly visually..... this was more than preventable 

    anybody would do what she did.

    agree. can't believe there are people here complaining she (his team) is suing the helicopter company. really?  they killed her husband and 13 year daughter and 6 others because their pilot fucked up. i hope the other families sue the fuck out of them too.
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 31,488
    Yeah, for 2 seconds, I was like that's kinda weird, then I thought about it for 2 more seconds and came to my senses.
  • DewieCoxDewieCox Posts: 10,963
    I’m guessing Kobe had a say in whether they flew or not. How much culpability did/does he have?

    Just greedy crap. You want to do something charitable? Fine , Sue for a million or some symbolic amount and help the other victims with their lawsuits. 

    No need to get up in arms over somebody with a different viewpoint.

    kobe has no culpability.  if you buy an airline ticket and the plane crashes do you not expect your family to sue because well  you chose to get on the plane?  come on dude.  stop trying to hold them to a different level because they have money.
